Alpine or Two-leaf Squill is the small, discreet, herbaceous plant from Asparagaceae family, showing up early in springtime. It produces twin basal narrow leaves, followed by short-stemmed (approx 10 cm in length) inflorescence bearing 3 to 8 blue flowers.
Observed on edges of an oak lowland forest on the French-Switzerland border, early in spring.
